So Glad I Went

Hello my dear friends,

this past week has been so very hot outside that it was and still is unpleasant to go outside, so I don't very often. I have been working on my deck but only early in the morning and only for about 2 hours at a time and then back off inside where it is cool.

This morning my girls wanted to head out to one of the antique stores not far from where I live. At first I didn't really feel like it but in the end I gave in and off we went and in the end I am I glad we went!! I found some really neat things there today and they even had a sale on for some of the items I bought!!!

Take a look what I found...

A very pretty old brooch and some lovely vintage earrings.

Some large old brass curtain rings.
( I have something in mind for these already)

A lot of beautiful antique lace and ...

... look at these!!

Two really super neat vintage boxes by Coats!!!
I am over the moon about finding these and I know exactly what I am going to do with them!

At times when we don't feel like doing something, sometimes it ends up making us happy that we did do it in the end - like today for me - I am so glad I went! I hope this makes sense to you.

I hope you are well.

Have a peaceful and creative day,

Karen B.
